    • 1 Contents Quick overview of key trends 3 Regional results 6 Statistical Annex Annex-1 to Annex-31 This Advance Release of the UNWTO World Tourism Barometer with its accompanying Statistical Annex is presented on the occasion of the UNWTO 20th General Assembly. It includes an analysis of preliminary results for international tourism for the first half of 2013 based on arrivals and receipts data reported by destinations around the world, as well on international tourism expenditure data for source markets around the world. This release is available only in electronic format, through the UNWTO elibrary, and is free of charge for members. The release is provided in English only, while the Statistical Annex is available in English, French, Spanish and Russian. Tourism demand exceeds expectations in first half of 2013 International tourist arrivals grew by 5% during the first half of 2013 compared to the same period of 2012, reaching almost 500 million. Growth was above the projection made at the beginning of the year (+3% to +4%), also exceeding the trend of the UNWTO long-term outlook Tourism Towards 2030 (+3.8% a year on average between 2010 and 2020). Destinations around the world welcomed an estimated 494 million overnight visitors between January and June 2013. This represents an increase of 5%, or an additional 25 million international tourist arrivals, compared to the same period of 2012. Growth was stronger in emerging economy destinations (+6%) than in advanced economies (+4%), a trend which has marked the sector for many years now. Asia and the Pacific and Europe lead the growth In a still uneven global economic environment, results were positive in all regions and subregions, though the overall picture was mixed. Europe (+5%) performed surprisingly stronger than expected, driven by Central and Eastern Europe (+9%) and Southern and Mediterranean Europe (+6%). Asia and the Pacific (+6%) also exceeded expectations, boosted by South-East Asia (+12%) and South Asia (+7%). On the other hand, results were weaker than anticipated in the Americas (+2%), as South America and the Caribbean lagged behind.

Growth is expected to continue in the second half of 2013 but at a slower pace. At the beginning of this year UNWTO projected international arrivals to grow in the range of 3% to 4% in 2013. Given the strong results of the first semester, the 2013 full-year rate is likely to be at the higher end of this range or to slightly exceed it. Advance Release on the occasion of the UNWTO 20th General Assembly • Volume 11 • August 2013

    • 3 Volume 11 • August 2013 Quick overview of key trends International tourist arrivals up 5% in January-June 2013 compared to the same period of 2012 • A total of 135 countries and territories have so far reported data on international tourist arrivals (overnight visitors) for one or more months of 2013 (out of 220). Of these, 105 countries or territories (78%) have reported an increase in tourist arrivals, with 31 (23%) enjoying double-digit growth, while 30 countries (22%) have posted a decrease. Over 90 countries have reported results for at least the first six months of 2013. • Based on this sample of destinations that reported data, it is estimated that destinations worldwide recorded 494 million international tourists between January and June 2013, some 25 million more than the 469 million recorded in the same period of 2012. This increase corresponds to a growth of 5%, reflecting a generally robust tourism sector despite on-going economic challenges in some parts of the world. • Boosted by an early Easter holiday (with a date shift from early April in 2012 to late March in 2013), the strongest growth was recorded in March, when tourist arrivals increased by an estimated 9% compared to the same month last year. For the same reason, April was the weakest month (0%). February 2013 was also strong in tourism activity (+7%), as was May (+6%). June (+5%) was around the average for the whole period, while January was slightly below (+4%).

In view of the worldwide interest in this market, ETC and UNWTO have prepared two joint reports on this subject: The Chinese Outbound Travel Market – 2012 Update, which offers an overview of the features and rapid evolution of the Chinese outbound tourism market, and Understanding Chinese Outbound Tourism – What the Chinese Blogosphere is Saying about Europe, which analyses the trends, themes and behaviour of Chinese tourists based on the analysis of online social media and internet searches. Available in English The Indian Outbound Travel Market, The Russian Outbound Travel Market and The Middle East Outbound Travel Market The Middle Eastern, Indian and Russian outbound travel markets are some of the fastest growing, and consequently increasingly important markets in the world. UNWTO and ETC have jointly published in-depth studies of each unique market, which aim to provide the necessary information to understand the structure and trends of these growing markets. Topics covered include: destination choice, purpose of travel, tourism expenditure, holiday activities and market segmentation, as well as the use of the internet and social media. Available in English Compendium of Tourism Statistics, 2013 Edition, Data 2007–2011 The Compendium of Tourism Statistics provides data and indicators on inbound, outbound and domestic tourism, as well as on the number and types of tourism industries, the number of employees by tourism industries, and macroeconomic indicators related to international tourism. The 2012 edition presents data for 209 countries from 2007 to 2011, with methodological notes in English, French and Spanish.
